Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThis is a searing account of life in the underclass and why it persists as it does, written by a British psychiatrist who treats the poor in a slum hospital and a prison in England. Dr. Dalrymple's key insight is that long-term poverty is caused not by economics but by a dysfunctional set of values.
PortraitTheodore Dalrymple is a physician and psychiatrist who practices in England. He writes a column for the London Spectator, contributes frequently to the Daily Telegraph, and is a contributing editor of the Manhattan Institute's City Journal. His other books include Our Culture, What's Left of It, Mass Listeria, and So Little Done. He lives in Birmingham, England.
PressestimmenLucid, unsentimental, and profoundly honest...Dalrymple is one of the great essayists of our age.--Denis Dutton, Editor, "Arts & Letters Daily"
